The Poverty Problem—The Impact of Poverty on Learning and the Brain

Wednesday, January 13 | 2:00 p.m. (CT)

Poverty is the single most significant event impacting education today. Every year, school systems dedicate resources, draft policies, and create new services to meet students' academic and behavioral challenges coming from poverty. However, many of these attempts to address students' needs in poverty are occurring without vital information about how poverty is transforming students' brains today. Attempting to address poverty issues with only partial information is like completing a puzzle with key pieces missing. When the puzzle is assembled, you can make out the general picture, but many key details are lost. The brain transformations resulting from poverty speak to the heart of the academic and behavioral issues schools seek to overcome. The neuroscience of poverty provides a clear picture of why academic and behavioral problems occur in relation to poverty and how to design a more precise response to best address the issues.

Attendees will learn:

  • How poverty transforms brain structures and functions
  • The impact of poverty on learning and self-regulation
  • How to modify instruction to have success with students from low-socioeconomic statuses

SEL from a Distance: Building a Framework of Processes into your School/District to Guarantee Student Success

Thursday, March 4 | 2:00 p.m. (CT)

Make social and emotional learning a way of being—all day, every day, and in any setting.

The pandemic and subsequent switch to distance learning combined with recent instances of racial injustice have put a spotlight on cracks in the practice of social and emotional learning (SEL). More than ever before, schools are shifting their focus and prioritizing SEL competencies—around the nation and the world. The call for compassion has never been greater.

To easily and effortlessly build SEL into virtual, blended, or in-person environments, behavior experts Jessica Djabrayan Hannigan and John Hannigan have drawn together a collection of tools and processes for SEL that can be applied in any learning environment.

Attendees will learn:

  • The five SEL competencies and dozens of easy-to-use processes for building skills in each
  • How to identify challenging behaviors and prioritize, define mastery, and teach the SEL skills necessary to address them
  • Tips for identifying, teaching, modeling, and reinforcing SEL skills in a virtual setting
  • Strategies for applying SEL to the needs of your unique learning environment

We hope you will join us for this insightful webinar.
